The Art of the Barricade

The Art of the Barricade

Tuesday, October 11, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The installation of Ahmet Öğüt’s Bakunin’s Barricade at the Allen presents a promising moment for thinking through the intersections of radical art, history, and politics. In this talk, Nicholas Bujalski, Visiting Assistant Professor of History, will explore the nature of this peculiar historical technology of insurrection – and invite attendees to reflect upon how barricades have served as generative sites for revolutionary reconsiderations of time, space, and political aesthetics from the nineteenth century to the present day.

Ahmet Öğüt, Bakunin's Barricade, 2022.
